The Left Hand of God - Left Hand of God Trilogy, #1

The Left Hand of God grabbed my attention from the start and didn't let go. For me one of the most interesting aspects of the book was how the disparate personalities of Thomas, Kleist, and Vague Henri interact with each other and make it w...

Horizons

Horizons shows why Mickie Ashling quickly became one of my favorite author's since the first book I read. Each book is a journey - both for the characters and the reader - it isn't always pleasant (at least not for the characters, as for th...

Warrior Angel, Heart's Desire - Immortal Pleasures Book 1

I enjoyed reading Warrior Angel, Heart's Desire and certainly like Ms. Edwards' take on angels. One of the best things about this read - for me - is the interactions between the characters. I liked how Michael and Lucifer sniped at each oth...

Out of the Shadows

I have soft spot for books like Out of the Shadows, aside from the paranormal aspect. Jai Hanson is self-confident, a good friend, a good worker, and has good friends. Dane Bryant is new to this particular pack and is self-confident too, bu...

5 Stars

Kaminishi

Kaminishi was a great read that provided a different take on time-travel and past lives. For me, the best part of the story was that things don't always work out the way that a person may want to, but that it does not mean that all is lost...

Sybelle - The Roselynde Chronicles Book Six

As with the other books I have read by Roberta Gellis, Sybelle is first rate. Great characters, wonderful insight into the time period, and time well spent reading. What I came away with reading Sybelle is that everything is presented in su...

Rhiannon - The Roselynde Chronicles Book Five

A wonderful read that brings the time period to life and I enjoyed re-visiting both it and the characters that are a part of the Roselynde Chronicles. Part of what draws me to Ms. Gellis' writing is the vividness - of the landscape, the cha...

Vegan Family Meals - Real Food for Everyone

There are several things I like about the cookbook. The first is the layout. While not entirely keen on the color scheme, it works and blends everything together. The photographs do the same. Second is the personable approach to the informa...

The Devil Colony - A Sigma Force Novel

From a mysterious find - and an even more mysterious explosion and its fallout - in Utah to Iceland to Fort Knox, Kentucky and several places in between, The Devil Colony blends history, science, and fiction to provide a great story. On one...

Among Thieves - A Tale of the Kin

Among Thieves is reminiscent to me of Brent Weeks' Night Angel books, albeit being very different from them. For me, it was more of the feeling of the book. Drothe is a reluctant participant in the events. However, he is the type of charact...

The Play Soldier

The Play Soldier is a story about an average guy who poses as an ex-Marine, is a draft evader, a college graduate, and who dreams of not only what might have been, but of what he believes could be. When his luck goes from bad to worse, he t...

The Last Four Things - Left Hand of God Trilogy, #2

The Last Four Things provided an excellent read. The author provides a rich tapestry that weaves together story, characters, and place. Central to the story (as with The Left Hand of God) is Thomas Cale and he personifies the story. The nai...

Zuriel's Fate - Celestial Justice, #2

For a novella, Zuriel's Fate packs a nice punch. As a reader, I liked the concept, the characters, and the "world" of the celestial court. I liked both of the main characters for different reasons. Zuriel because the reader sees his doubts...

Blood Pond Resurfacing

What to say, what to say? This is the kind of read I really like having - it kept me riveted, has the appropriate ambiance to the story, and has enough twists and turns to do the game of Twister(tm) proud. August is pretty sure about Bruce,...

Shades of the Past - EMS Heat Series, #9

I enjoyed reading SHADES OF THE PAST very much. The author's writing style, the subject matter, and the characters themselves have a lot to do with that. Ms. Hecht has a talent for making the reader (or at least this reader) see the scene a...

Stars

Infernal Affairs - An OSI Novel

What could possibly go wrong when what seems like a dead body found on a beach turns out to be alive? Especially when it is, in actuality, a demon? Quite a lot - at least in Tess's world. I enjoyed having another glimpse into the OSI world...

Ghosts of War

Ghosts of War has the kind of edginess and writing that I really like reading. Through the Ghost, the reader can see a man who is trying to do the right thing and would probably be the last man to consider himself a hero. He is disconnected...

A lot of misunderstandings can occur when first contact is made after a fashion with a very reclusive race: trade negotiations are initiated and the Coyote Federation is offered information in return. The problem is that the information is...

Wild Hunt

Wild Hunt is a story of the ties that bind - physical and emotional. It is also a story of passion, love, violence, and what people are willing to do to and for each other. I found the tale to be compelling and forceful. Aside from the char...

Branded

Branded is one of those stories that I am, for the most part, of two minds about. That, however may also be the point and why I like it. I like Maen and the struggle he goes through - especially when all that he has known (or thought he kne...

Draconian Measures

I enjoyed this new look into the Finnarian world and to see how Sadan's and Graitaan's relationship developed. I also liked seeing glimpses of a young Vlar. Graitaan was, to me, more well-rounded than Sadan - both through the parts of the s...

The Sandalwood Tree is a great story and Ms. Newmark has a wonderful gift for writing. Reading the book, the reader gets a sense of time and place - you can practically smell the patchouli, sandalwood soap......and the not so nice odors tha...

Snapshots and Bylines - Friends to Lovers, #3

I have read other Stephani Hecht stories and enjoyed them. This novella thought felt as if the chapters were bookends waiting to hold up other titles. The beginning tells of Marc and Sammy's first time being together (and the chaos surround...

Out of the Gilded Cage - Sequel to Condor and Falcon

I enjoyed reading Out of the Gilded Cage - as I have other works by Mr. Simpson - and the writing can't be faulted. While I liked re-visiting the Condor "world", and the story compares to other John Simpson stories, I found myself finding t...

The Poet Prince - A Novel

Not having read the other two books in the Magdalene Line, I cannot vouch for how The Poet Prince stands within the series. Having said that, based on the book itself, I would want to read them. Ms. McGowan, for me, presents not only a diff...

The Omega Theory - A Novel

The Omega Theory opens, literally, with a bang and goes on from there. The book appealed to me before I read it on a couple different levels. One, I like thrillers. Two, the blurb mentioned that the blast that starts of the story is differe...

Stars

The Mozart Conspiracy - A Novel

While I generally like to stick to authors I know and like, I also like finding new (or at least new to me) authors. Since I like the suspense, action/adventure, and mystery genres, The Mozart Conspiracy seemed like a good fit. I saw on the...

5 Stars

The Council of Shadows - A Novel of the Shadowspawn

I have mixed feelings about the book. I liked the writing, Mr. Stirling's twist on the vampire and shifter legends, and the conflicts - both personal and "bigger picture". What could possibly be wrong with that combination? Nothing really a...

Heartland

Heartland is a nice addition to my cookbook shelves and embodies what I like seeing in them. It not only has recipes, but stories and informational tidbits about people, traditions, and foods. There are photographs as well that include scen...

The Falling Machine - The Society of Steam, #1

I liked the premise of The Falling Machine in that Fortified Steam is used by both a team of adventurers (and normal steam power by the villains) to enhance their abilities. I especially liked Tom the Automaton, Sarah Stanton, and how they...

Days of Gold: A Novel - Edilean Series, #2

I have always enjoyed reading Ms. Deveraux's books and Days of Gold was no exception. Part of the appeal of Ms. Deveraux's books for me is that she creates vivid imagery for the reader in part by leaving - at least for me - a bit of the det...

Savage Nature - Leopard Novel, #5

What I like about Christine Feehan's books in general is that, whether it's the Carpathians, the Ghostwalkers or the Leopard series, each series tends to have its own, distinct voice and the characters shine through - even if some of them t...
